Not too sure about conferences. We have UX in London but not sure how much
focus is on JS.

On the forum / educational side I have found the following resources
invaluable: 

CSS
www.css-tricks.com
Chris Coyier's screencasts and blog posts are awesome for learning simple
and advanced css authoring and keeping up-to-date with best practices. 

Experts Exchange
http://www.experts-exchange.com/
This is a subscription based service but the quality of programming advice
for every language including JS is well worth it

For IDE's it's difficult and for me, the single biggest barrier to entry
because of the huge number of development options. The key is to find a
workflow that works best for you but the following resources I cannot
recommend highly enough:
- Sublime Text 2
- Wordpress (Bones HTML5 Development Theme)
- CSS using SASS (Compass.App)
- Greensock Animation Library

Sublime Text 2 - Text Editor
http://www.sublimetext.com/2
There are thousands of extensions and packages I don't know where to begin

If you're learning HTML5 then learning responsive design techniques is a
must - this involves using CSS media queries so once you have grasped the
basics of CSS, be sure to move to using pre-processing language like SASS or
LESS - there's a great article on css tricks about the benefits and merits
of each method. I use SASS and it's sped up my whole development  process 10
fold!). To do this on Windows I use compass.app

http://compass.handlino.com/
If you're using Mac, then Codekit includes libraries for compass.

I do a lot of web development in Wordpress, there are a lot of great
resources out there but if you're really looking to learn best practices for
Responsive Web Design then you cannot go wrong with the Bones HTML5 Theme,
amazingly well commented
http://themble.com/bones/


Animation:
jQuery is obviously ubiquitous but if you're a flasher then you've probably
used Tweenmax in AS3 and if you loved using that as much as I did then you
should definitely try the new Greensock for JavaScript library. 
http://www.greensock.com/
It provides a nice, familiar syntax and a ton of plugins that make animation
in html5 a lot easier than using jQuery plugins which seem to have a short
shelve life due to continual updates of the jQuery library (Can also be used
on conjunction with jQuery).

I haven't tried Sencha yet but look forward to dipping my toe soon.

If you're looking to develop purely in Javascript using MVC design patterns
then a framework like backbone.js , dojo or node.js get a lot of mentions
though I haven't looked into any of this seriously yet.

2013-01-25 Thread Ima Newsletta

Hello mates,
I think that the list is missing one of the most important js library 
for flashist of of there, that is the createjs

http://www.createjs.com/
As you all, I'm a flashist (10 years of experience) that had to 
(re)learn html and javascript.
When I began to use createjs, in particular easeljs I was really pleased 
because it seemed to me to program (quite) exactly as in Flash.


A demo is worth 1000 words so here it is 2 demos I made in html/js by 
using that library (obviously I use also a lot jquery as support and the 
greensock libs for tweening):


Monkey Island - Insult Swordfighting Game
http://www.int33h.com/test/mi/

Dungeon Master Social Demo
http://www.int33h.com/test/dm/

I'm really pleased by the results.
I stronlgy suggest that if you want to learn html/js then you have to 
begin with createjs.

RE: [Flashcoders] Re: OT: Interactive conferences (Merrill, Jason)

2013-01-25 Thread Paul Steven
This is a really interesting thread. I have been creating Flash content for
about 10 years, mainly online small games for clients. Recently I have
noticed a real decline in the amount of work in this area no doubt as a
result of such games not working on IOS devices.

However I have not had any enquiries asking for HTML5 games.

I am keen to get up to speed with HTML5 but wonder if there will be
sufficient demand especially for HTML5 games. Any freelancers out there who
previously made a living making Flash games now getting most of their work
in HTML5? If so what type of content are you creating in HTML5? Is it
websites, games, apps?

It all seems quite a backward step especially in relation to the games.
Fortunately I am loving creating games for the IOS and Android with Flash
CS6 and AIR though I am making these for myself currently.

Thanks

Paul

 LESS - there's a great article on css tricks about the benefits and merits
 of each method. I use SASS and it's sped up my whole development  process 10
 fold!). To do this on Windows I use compass.app
 
 http://compass.handlino.com/
 If you're using Mac, then Codekit includes libraries for compass.
 
 I do a lot of web development in Wordpress, there are a lot of great
 resources out there but if you're really looking to learn best practices for
 Responsive Web Design then you cannot go wrong with the Bones HTML5 Theme,
 amazingly well commented
 http://themble.com/bones/
 
 
 Animation:
 jQuery is obviously ubiquitous but if you're a flasher then you've probably
 used Tweenmax in AS3 and if you loved using that as much as I did then you
 should definitely try the new Greensock for JavaScript library.
 http://www.greensock.com/
 It provides a nice, familiar syntax and a ton of plugins that make animation
 in html5 a lot easier than using jQuery plugins which seem to have a short
 shelve life due to continual updates of the jQuery library (Can also be used
 on conjunction with jQuery).
 
 I haven't tried Sencha yet but look forward to dipping my toe soon.
 
 If you're looking to develop purely in Javascript using MVC design patterns
 then a framework like backbone.js , dojo or node.js get a lot of mentions
 though I haven't looked into any of this seriously yet.

 Thanks Dave - I have found a few of my answers on Stack Overflow in the
 past, I like it. Is it web browser only or can you subscribe like a mailing
 list? I think I prefer that format.

Thanks guys! We narrowed down our recommendations to O'Reilley Fluent, FITC, 
and Adobe Max. I think I am leaning towards going to FITC. Fluent looks awesome 
but expensive!

 Hi All,

 I am creating a multilingual as2 app and the data for this app will come
 from XML. I need to target almost 17 language(including Arabic and urdu). I
 have heard that Arabic and urdu are very difficult to implement in flash.
 Can anyone guide me in right direction to implement these languages.


 Any suggestions in this regard would be great

 Regards

I have switched to HTML5, from Flash, for my web apps as so many of my 
customers want to use iPad. My apps are medical in nature (use of them requires 
proper professional credentials) and so I don't want to put them on the App 
store. I charge a subscription fee for access  to the apps and issue Usernames 
and Passwords to the subscribers. After a long search and trial of many tools, 
I settled on HandHeldDesigner. It is the closest programming tool to Flash that 
I have seen and so far I have been able to do anything with it that I have 
wanted. It is available on the Mac App store and at  http://handhelddesigner.com

I have no affiliation with the program or the author.

Since this might also be about tools you might want to see on your visit, what 
do tools/IDEs you use (especially Javascript)?

We're transitioning away from Flash mostly and into the HTML/Javascript/CSS

doing less and less with Adobe products, what conferences would you suggest? 
What is/are the biggest and best interactive design conferences for people in 
our industry that use these technologies? Bascially, we were Flash developers 
and now do most of our stuff with Javascript/HTML/CSS to build interactive 
simulations and games for learning. What would be the equivalent of Adobe Max?
